Cheryl Goodman 

 
Are you feeling:
  • overwhelmed by current life circumstances?
  • just plain stuck emotionally?
 Oftentimes, we deal with our current circumstances and present-day decisions using old thought processes and old patterns of behavior. More often than not, these old patterns do not work as well in the present as they did in the past. 
 

Helping you identify and make a plan to manage those overwhelming feeling and thoughts is one of my strengths as a counselor. I don't know about you, but I prefer to manage my life as opposed to having it manage me.

 
We engage in the counseling process by identifying your concerns and personal strengths. New skills such as discovering your thoughts and challenging them with truthful statements is only one technique my clients acquire in order to get unstuck and find a new freedom in managing stressors. These skills help you manage your thoughts and actions.
 

I am a caring professional counselor, seasoned with rich life experiences, who can help you to get unstuck and show you innovative ways to live your life. I have been working with children, adolescents and families for over 30 years as an educator and a professional clinical counselor.

 

I have been providing individual, marital and family counseling services in New Mexico for ten years. My clients of elementary-school age to retirement age present with a wide range of needs and concerns. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Family Systems, Tapping and EMDR are just a few of the counseling skills I employ to give my clients the best options in addressing their need.

 

I have a deep commitment to helping my clients achieve God’s best for their lives. I blend the truth of Scripture with the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you to develop a plan to live a more productive life with meaningful relationships. 

 
Issues with which I work are:
  • Trauma - using EMDR or Cognitive Processing Therapy
  • Anxiety
  • Anger Management
  • Depression
  • Relationship building
  • Communication skill development
  • Family structure development
  • Boundary development and application
 

It would be my pleasure to help you acquire new life management skills that allow you to find more comfort in living life to it’s fullest.
